Answer to Dr. Tarek Heggy, Egyptian Bahai

On 24th January an article by Dr. Tarek Heggy (letter produced below) was put on the Egyptian Bahá’í website and surprisingly was translated into many language overnight it was spread all over the net.

Well Mr. Heggy first of all you are sitting out of our country, and spreading false rumors and spoiling image of our country, simply you should have said that you are a Bahá’í what is the need of saying that “If you were a Bahá’í”.

It has crossed all limits of Dramatics and entered the domain of Hypocrisy. Well Mr. Heggy you should know that in recent past there is a good attack on Bahá’í Faith accusing the Bahá’ís of hypocrisy and this is a best proof of it.

Means you want to show that you are a non Bahá’í and looking at the pity situation of the Bahá’ís of Egypt you are unable to control yourself resulting in this article.

Mr. Heggy there are quite a number of educated people who are surfing the net and they are wise enough to conclude that:

1-This letter was written on the directives of Universal House of Justice. The UHJ is controlled by Israel hence it is direct interference by Israel in Egypt’s internal matters.

2-The article tends to tarnish the image of Egypt and Egyptians.

3-The article proves beyond doubt that Bahá’ís are Hypocrite and they have no love even for the country in which they live.

4-The frequency of the irrelevant article being translated into different languages supports that Bahá’ís have a well co-ordinated network through out the world.

5-The UHJ wants to trouble the Bahá’ís of Egypt so they can use it for collecting money.

6-The article also tends to rationalize the Bans imposed by different countries on Bahá’í Faith especially Iran.

Mr. Heggy Your shot is misfired!!!. There is quite a good chance that UHJ will either deprived you of your voting Rights or declare you as a Covenant Breaker.

Answer to his letter

Yes If you are a Baha’i then appeal to all the Baha’is (and the UHJ) to please let The Bahá’ís live in peace in Egypt please do not disturb the already disturb situation of Baha’is of Egypt. What Bahá’ís require is peace of mind but not your piece of mind .There is no systematic plan to eliminate already fractured 150 Baha’i community of Egypt. Yes, the only systematic plot is by UHJ which is interested in getting cheap publicity and making Baha’i Martyrs in Egypt rather helping the Baha’is to come out of this situation.

We understand that this letter posted by Tarek Heggy and the previous one were written on the directives of UHJ. The people of Egypt consider Baha’i Faith as espionage organization controlled by Israel. UHJ is instigating Bahá’ís to write irrelevant letter time and again, considering Egyptians are fools.

Yes AbdulBaha did visit Egypt but then he has visited US and Europe too. In fact he was offered the Degree of SIR by British Government! Moreover If the Egyptians can welcome Abdul Baha then certainly they will not have problems with Baha’is of today. Egyptians are by nature hospitable they do not trouble anyone unless offended.

Yes the Egyptians Baha’is will get their land and position, provided the Government of Israel return back all those places of the German template colony and the houses around your head office at Haifa, Israel to their owners .Which they have unjustly usurped and given to Baha’is to establish their World centre so that The Baha’is can set an espionage network in Israel and to collect in formations of all other countries through you.

Yes the Baha’is involved in Espionage charges in Egypt will be free, provided the Government of Indonesia sets free the Baha’is who were caught conducting Baha’i Children classes for children less than 12 years of age. After a fair trial these Baha’is were sentenced for imprisonment and till today they are languishing in prison.

Yes the Baha’is involved in Espionage charges in Egypt will be released, if the Government of Yemen call back the Baha’is whom they deported on charges were arrested and deported on charges of “proselytizing” in a manner against Yemeni law.

Yes the Baha’is involved in Espionage charges in Egypt will be freed, provided the government of Uzbekistan takes back all the deported Baha’is on espionage charges and carrying out secret Proselytizing activities for tiny tots less than 8 years.

Yes the Baha’is involved in Espionage charges in Egypt will be freed, when the government of India drops all court cases against the Baha’is involved in spying ring (Spy ring Busted)

(Refer http://panchgani-Bahais.blogspot.com/ for details)

Yes the Baha’is involved in Espionage charges in Egypt will be freed, provided the Government of Iran releases all the Baha’is especially the Yaran member who were caught red handed sending Iranian secrets outside Iran and they themselves agreed that they were carrying out teaching activities in remote of Iran following the orders from Universal House of Justice That Go and teach Iranian and convert them.

There are innumerable countries where the Baha’is are blacklisted and above are few examples.

Yes, if you are a Baha’i, then apologize to the people of Egypt for the ABSOLUTE LIE which you spoke against the Education Minister of Egypt attributing a wrong statement to him, regarding enrollment of Baha’i children in public school.

Yes if you are a Baha’i ask UHJ why they have impersonated sites saying they are made by Muslims and Jews? It is sheer lie and not only the Muslims and Jews are aware about it but even the Baha’is know this.

If you are a Baha’i, please tell your House of Justice that do not spy on Baha’i intellectuals, or use offensive and derogatory language against Baha’is and Excommunicate them for petty reasons.

Yes, if you are a Baha’i, request the UHJ not the make the lives of other sects of Baha’is miserable by slamming court cases against them and demanding them not to use the word BAHA’I for themselves. It is unprecedented in the history of any Religion. And then there is a humiliation of ultimately loosing the court cases

Yes if you are a Baha’i, please ask UHJ – why they are in contact with the human rights organization and religious freedom organization and complain to them about the ill treatment of Baha’is while they themselves are ill treating their own people?

Yes If you are a Baha’i, please ask UHJ why blame Al Azhar for calling Baha’i Faith as a non Religion? Why do you not Ask UHJ that what are terms like Registration of Faith, incorporation of assemblies, registering of voters, excommunication, deprivation of voting rights etc are in use?. These are the terms suited for a corporate house rather then a faith.

Yes If you are a Baha’i, please ask UHJ to explain to the world that why Bahaullah was exiled from Iran to Iraq then Constantinople and finally Akka? Is it the inheritance of the Baha’is which they have got from their central figures of imprisonment exile, or is it a result of carrying out espionage activities? Why the Baha’i Faith has become synonymous with Spying and Hypocrisy? Isn’t the letter of Mr. Tarek Heggy a living proof of it? You are not faithful to any country – that includes Israel as well.

And finally if you are a Baha’i, see that this letter of mine is translated into French, Italian, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Farsi and Arabic. Let this letter be posted along with your letter. After all, you are such a good Baha’i that you are loyal to your country and love Egypt despite having so many problems created for you.

Post of Dr. Tarek Heggy

If I were — a Bahá’í – in Egypt!

By Tarek Heggy

If I were Bahá’í I would have informed the world of the systematic plan to eliminate all trace of the Bahá’í Faith and the Baháís from Egypt.

If I were Bahá’í: I would have brought to the attention of all the great personalities and the intellectuals of the world the respect and regard with which their peers in Egypt received ‘Abdu’l-Bahá (Son of Bahá’u’lláh) during His visit to this country in the early 20th. Century, and with what filth and disregard today’s pretentious personalities and false intellectuals of Egypt smear the fair name of Bahá’í and the Bahá’ís.

If I were Bahá’í: I would have taken for witness the concourse of Justice in the world on the subject of the Al-Azhar Establishment and say to its honourable Ulamá: How could you decide today that Bahá’í is not a religion when the Superior Shar’ia Tribunal of Beba/Souhag ruled in 1925 that “Bahá’í is an independent religion.”

If I were Bahá’í: I would have taken for witness the concourse of Justice in the world on the subject of the Al-Azhar Establishment which with all the mosques, mesdjids and kettab schools at their disposal in Egypt, have found it necessary to disown the Bahá’í Community of their main Centre building to use it for a Qur’ánic school.

If I were Bahá’í: I would have taken for witness the concourse of Justice in the world on the subject of the imprisonment of some 92 Bahá’ís–men and women–aged between 2 and 80 years. They were arrested between midnight and dawn from all over Egypt and transferred to jail in Tanta; then falsely accused of treason, misconduct and espionage, far and wide in the media, for no other reason than because they are Bahá’í.

If I were Bahá’í: I would have taken for witness the concourse of Justice in the world on the frequent arrest of Bahá’ís, men and women, their incarceration in jail for days, weeks or months for interrogation. The courts have never found them guilty of neither crime nor fault, but they were Bahá’í.

If I were Bahá’í: I would have taken for witness the concourse of Art in the west and in the east, to the case of one of the greatest and most admired artists of Egypt, Hussein Bikar, who was arrested in his home and driven to jail with other renowned Bahá’ís for days of interrogation regarding his and their Bahá’í Faith.

If I were Bahá’í: I would have taken for witness the concourse of Art in the west and in the east, and would say to them: Hussein Bikar, one of the greatest and most admired Artists of Egypt had no Identity card at his death at almost 90 years of age. The Egyptian Authorities refused to issue one with “Bahá’í” mentioned in the space for religion.

If I were Bahá’í: I would have taken for witness the world Organizations of Law and Justice and of Human Rights, government and non-government alike, and said to them: imagine that in Egypt of the 21st. Century, individual Identity Cards have to include the binding indication of the religion of the individual?

If I were Bahá’í: I would have taken for witness the world Organizations of Law and Justice and of Human Rights, government and non-government alike, and said to them: imagine that in Egypt of the 21st. Century, individual Identity Cards must include the binding indication of one of only three religions notwithstanding the individual’s wish or faith?

If I were Bahá’í: I would have taken for witness the world Organizations of Law and Justice and of Human Rights, government and non-government alike, and said to them: in Egypt of the 21st. Century, the sons and daughters of Bahá’ís are issued individual Identity Cards with a dash (–) for religion while their parents are refused identity cards: WHY? Because the Egyptian State does not recognize Bahá’í marriage! O people of the world: come and take stock of administrative excellence!

If I were Bahá’í: I would have taken for witness all the Ministers of Education of the world and informed them that: the Minister of Education of Egypt has declared that he will refuse admittance of children–yes children of Bahá’ís to the government schools because the children are Bahá’í!

If I were Bahá’í: I would have informed the world that the new Egyptian Constitution contains the necessary elements for the elimination of the Bahá’í minority in Egypt.

If I were Bahá’í: I would have informed the world that burning the homes of Bahá’ís takes place with impunity in Egypt.

If I were Bahá’í: I would have taken for witness the world Organizations of Mass Media, of Law and Justice and of Human Rights, government and non-government alike, and informed them that in Egypt, inciting to kill Bahá’ís, through TV and speeches is normal and is done with impunity!

In spite of all this:

If I were Bahá’í: I would have said to those in authority in Egypt: I am loyal to my country, I love my country, I strive for the success and progress of my country and I consider the children of my neighbors as my children without consideration of religion or creed. How wonderful would Egypt be were you, who are in authority, to follow in this same path.
